A new report just came out by Common Sense Media & it found that our children are spending on average 9 hours a day on technology like watching TV, playing video games, reading, listening to music and checking social media.  And the 9 hours does not include time spent using media at school or for their homework.

 

Our guest is Ben Kurzrock.  He graduated from UCLA in 2016 with a degree in Global Studies and focus in international media, the major provided him with an opportunity to write essays about comedy and satire from all over the globe.

 

Currently he is a comedy writer/editor aspiring to write for television one day, particularly animation. He currently works in post-production at a digital comedy production company called JASH. In his free time, he creates sketch comedy, host talk radio shows, and write and direct cartoons.
